Wilde Auftaktdemo gegen G8

Germany, 03.06.2007 02:11

Freude und Niederlage lagen auf der Rostocker Großdemo gestern nah beieinander. Manche der TeilnehmerInnen sprachen von einem „großen Erfolg“, andere waren einigermaßen enttäuscht (Attac). Die Bewertungen der gestrigen Großdemonstration in Rostock gegen den nahenden G8-Gipfel gingen zwischen den teilnehmenden Organisationen weit auseinander. Denn auch die AktivistInnen hatten unterschiedliche Vorstellungen von wirkungsvollem Protest. Nach einer bunten Großdemo durch die norddeutsche Metropole, an der laut VeranstalterInnen rund 80.000 Menschen teilnahmen, kam es zu Schlagabtauschen zwischen autonomen DemonstrantInnen und der Polizei.Aktuelle Meldungen: Breaking-News



AntiG8 in Rostock

Netherlands, 03.06.2007 01:39

Vanaf 6 juni komen de leiders van de G8 bij elkaar voor hun jaarlijkse festijn, deze keer in Heiligendamm, Duitsland. Terwijl de presidenten en premiers handtekeningen zetten en handjes schudden, zijn er in het nabij gelegen Rostock een week lang acties en demonstraties.

Zoals verwacht is de repressie in Duitsland groot. Het begon met invallen van anti-terreureenheden in verschillende anti-G8-centra. Een fietskaravaan op weg naar Duitsland werd in Utrecht tegengehouden, waarbij meer dan honderd mensen werden gearresteerd. Afgelopen weekend werd tijdens ASEM in Hamburg een Reclaim the Streets feest uit elkaar gemept en werden mensen zonder aanwijsbare reden opgepakt, gecontroleerd en aangevallen.

Zondag 3 juni:
Een Reclaim the Streets party is opgebroken door vijf politie-eenheden. De plek waar de muziek vandaan kwam, werd binnengevallen en feestgangers werden de straat uit gejaagd. Kleine groepjes blackbloc trekken door de stad.

Zaterdag 2 juni:
In Schwerin, net als Rostock in Mecklenburg, organiseerden nazi's een demonstratie tegen de G8. Antifascisten kwamen om een anti-demo te houden. Beide demonstraties werden verboden, omdat de politie claimde dat er niet genoeg manschappen waren om de twee demo's gescheiden te houden. Meer dan honderd antifa's zijn gearresteerd. Enkele tientallen minderjarigen werden weggevoerd met een bus. Uiteindelijk zijn de meesten zonder aanklacht vrijgelaten.

In Rostock was de officiele demonstratie van een coalitie van vakbonden, ATTAC, christelijke organisaties en veel individuen (inclusief anarcho's en communisten). Het enige gemeenschappelijke standpunt leek een anti-G8 gevoel. Er was wat geduw en getrek tussen politie en demonstranten, waardoor het concert af en toe stil werd gelegd. Er waren waterkanons met traangas en enkele gewonden, maar over het algemeen is de demo goed verlopen. Er waren ongeveer 80.000 mensen.

Germany: 700 activists occupy military base and colour watchtowers pink !

Portland, 02.06.2007 23:38

The 142 square kilometre Bombodrom (80 km north of Berlin) was used as a bombing range by the Soviet army for 40 years. Since 1992 the German military has been trying to take over the facility to establish an air-ground bombing range for German, EU and NATO forces to conduct combined operations of air and ground forces. In protesting at the site the demonstrators are trying to highlight the connection between the G8 and war and to clearly show their rejection and resistance to war

Following some anti-war rallies the military area began to be occupied as people began erecting tents to create a temporary settlement. A military tower was painted pink in a repeat of a previous action that saw the military destroying a similar tower when they couldn´t get rid of all the pink paint!

GERMANY: G8 Rostock Demo Rally Attacked by Police

Just after half past two when the march from the station was entering the harbour a scuffle broke out at the far end of the stadium area near the exit. Several police officers were dragging a man away while people around where trying to find out his name. The situation quickly escalated... People were pushed back and then some sticks thrown at the police who responded with pepper spray. A wave of about 50 police followed a few seconds later, charging towards the crowd and was met with a hail of sticks and stones. All in all for what was just about one arrest the situation very quickly got out of hand. The police repeatedly charged into the centre of the harbour area in squads of around 30 or so, and thus became surrounded by thousands of people... some might call it provocation. At one point they were slowly pushed back out by a crowd of hundreds all with their arms raised above their heads, but then the police just turned around and charged back in again spraying people with pepper spray.

Support Rally for Latino men attacked by 20 white teenagers

Portland, 02.06.2007 23:38

We urge you to join human dignity groups, the immigrant community, and allies in a Vigil Against Hate Crimes:

Last Thursday, 20-30 white teenagers beat and threw stones at two Latino workers in the small town of Mulino. We are appalled and outraged at this racist, violent hate crime. Anti-immigrant sentiment has fueled countless other unreported violent acts against immigrant workers and families. Now is the time for us say no to hate and to fight for dignity and respect for all.

When: Sunday, June 3rd, at 6:00 pm
Where: Carnegie Center Park, 7th and Jefferson, in Oregon City.

Carpools from Portland at 5:15pm. Bring your car if you have one.
from North Portland: Liberty Hall (311 N Ivy St.)
from Southeast Portland: 2222 SE Caruthers

The anti-immigrant, anti-worker legislation being pushed in Congress is fueling hate crimes and vigilante violence in the streets (see pcasc.net/nodeal to take action).

IVAW Member Adam Kokesh may lose his &quot;Honorable&quot; status over a protest

DC, 02.06.2007 21:10

Washington, DC - Marine Corps veteran and IVAW member, Adam Kokesh, is facing a military hearing on June 4th that could result in his discharge status changing from “Honorable” to “Other Than Honorable” due to taking part in activities critical of the U.S. occupation in Iraq. Kokesh, who served in Fallujah in Iraq and was honorably discharged in November 2006, recently rejected a plea bargain offered by the military saying that it “risks the free speech rights of veterans and threatens to silence the voices of those whose experiences are most relevant in the most pressing debate before the nation.” http://www.ivaw.org/node/861 Press conference June 1st at 5pm, at the courtyard in front of Union Station in Washington DC.

Anti-G8 Protests Begin in Germany

DC, 02.06.2007 21:10

Today in the German City of Rostock tens of thousands of protesters marched through the city in an opening show of opposition to next weeks Group of 8 (G8) meeting in Heiligendamm, Germany. The march had two starting points at opposite sides of the city. Both marches met at the central harbor for a closing rally and concert. Activists from many backgrounds came out for the march. Carrying banners, puppets and signs protesters called attention to the many reasons to oppose the the G8. This year climate change and war took center stage among the NGO set. A large and militant block of anarchists and anti-fascists also marched. With banners and flags flying they drew attention to the larger problem of capitalism and empire. It is no use to ask the G8 to do anything was the major sentiment. It just legitimizes an illegitimate authority.

La prima grande manifestazione contro il G8: scontri e arresti

Germany, 02.06.2007 18:39


Oggi, due giugno 2007, era previsto il primo grande corteo [ 1 - 2 ] contro il G8 per le strade di Rostock, a pochi chilometri da Heiligendamm. Già nella mattinata circa 150 attivisti arrivati a Schwerin per opporsi a un corteo di nazisti è stato circondato dalla polizia e arrestato. Nel pomeriggio, mentre il corteo si avviava a una pacifica conclusione, le forze dell'ordine hanno caricato la manifestazione con gas lacrimogeni, spray urticanti e idranti. Il bilancio finale è di decine di feriti e fermi, il cui numero è ancora da accertare. La caccia all'uomo delle "snatch squad" (unità della polizia federale create allo scopo di arrestare singoli individui all'interno e all'esterno di un corteo) continua nelle strade di Rostock.

“There is No Apolitical Moment” – An interview with Majority Rules director Michael Burns

Boston, 02.06.2007 16:09

Michael Burns’ films are challenging. Not challenging in the respect that they’re difficult to decipher, but in that they challenge the audience to take a stand and to face serious defects in our political system. They’re not optimistic films. There’s no room for optimism when one honestly assesses the evidence in world affairs today. To present any other picture would be deeply dishonest. But there’s a critical difference between optimism and hope. Burns’ films are hopeful in that they propose that if we frankly confront the extent of the problems we face (be they America’s unfortunate two-party dominance, the White House’s pre-emptive war policy, or the systematic dismantling of any recognizable notion of democracy) then we have a chance to correct them. Without this first critical step, the kernel of hope that’s buried inside our major collective crises won’t be accessible.

anti-venezuela bill entering congress

Portland, 02.06.2007 14:41

As expected, the special attention the US press has given to the Venezuela RCTV 'scandal' is now being used as a political tool for the US government to increase hostilities towards Venezuela.

below is the bill proposed in congress that our great 'representatives' will most likely approve, and thus pave the way for 'regime change' by any means necessary.

Comment/Update: Every Senator approved this fascist bill! We need to seek real change, not Democrat cosmetics. There must be something right about socialism, to create such a backlash.

To Chavez, Lula, Requião and Carlos Rovira.

Portland, 02.06.2007 14:41

According to Miguel Angel del Ser, of Survival-International, six indigenous cultures, including isolated enawene nawe, face the perspective of 11 barrages that are being constructed throughout the course of the Juruena river, that crosses their territory. At the same time an old plan of construction of five great barrages along the Xingu river has been reactivated and will threaten the way of life of 18 different indigenous cultures from the region. The original plan was filed in 1989 after a massive international protest.

Remote enawene nawe are only 420 and live mainly on the fishing. They are protesting against the plans of the soybean companies, directed by the greater producers of soybean of the world, the Maggi family, to dam the Juruena river and to obtain hydroelectric energy for the industry.

What we do ask to governor Rovira is the creation of the great reserve of the Araucárias, private and also public, with about 500.000 hectares, from which we would like to recommence the empire of the Araucárias, extending it again for all its vast past region.

Thanks a lot, Emilio de Lima. Save the Amazon.

Seit Freitag den 1. Juni sind die Proteste gegen den G8-Gipfel angelaufen. Aktivistinnen aus aller Welt kommen rund um den Badeort zusammen um ein Zeichen gegen die neoliberale Politik, welche massgeblich von den grossen Industrienationen bestimmt wird, zu setzen.
Einerseits versammeln sich die Aktivistinnen in den verschiedenen Camps (Infos: en | fr) anderseits finden sich viele auch im Convergence Center (CC) in Rostock zusammen um, sich auszutauschen und zu vernetzen. (Bericht)

Im CC in Rostock treffen sich Medienaktivistinnen aus aller Welt um über die Proteste aus der Sicht der Aktivistinnen zu berichten. Dabei wird unteranderem ein Dispatch System (Infos ) betrieben, um Nachrichten zu verifizieren und zu verbreiten, die dann in einem Ticker (a href="http://de.indymedia.org/ticker/en/">en) publiziert werden, welcher auch via WAP bequem von Handy erreichbar ist. Ebenso organisieren verschiedene alternative Radios online Streams (Infos), welche auch über lokale Alternativ-Radios verteilt werden. Zudem organsieren Videoaktivistinnen jeden Tag eine Ausgabe von G8-Tv, welche in verschiedenen Sprachen erhätlich ist und von der Strasse berichtet.

Am 1.06. wurde der geplanten Bombenabwurfplatz in der Kyritz-Ruppiner Heide an zwei Standorten von 700 AktivistInnen besetzt. Über 100 Clowns begleiteten mit einer Performance das Einfärben eines ehemaligen Kommandoturms in antimilitaristisches Rosa.

Israeli Occupation Forces Storms Balata Refugee Camp

DC, 01.06.2007 20:11

On May 25, the Israeli Occupation Forces stormed Balata Refugee Camp in Nablus (Palestine). Here's a short clip from this military operation. On 24 May 2007 the Israeli Army invaded the Balata refugee camp outside the West Bank city of Nablus. First entering the camp disguised as Palestinian civilians, and later with a number of armored vehicles, the army arrested camp residents and placed the entire population under curfew. This video produced by the Research Journalism Initiative and the Anarchist Film Collective "A-Films" documents the invasion.

Tuesday Recruiting Center Photos

Portland, 01.06.2007 18:08

There were about 10 of us standing this week outside the recruitment center. The doors were shut today as they are from time to time. Still, lots of visibility, and flyers handed out, signs held. As usual the ratio of passersby, either walking, biking, or driving is about 40-1 positive. There are the occasional individuals who give the finger or yell that they support the troops. Such a jingoistic slogan which is devoid of meaning. If someone says that and they are walking, I ask, how do you support the troops? Do you actually do something to support them? It was a couple months back when I saw an Iraqi vet standing on the street with a will work for food sign. Car after car with yellow I support the troops stickers drove past. I did not see a one stop to 'support the troops'.

Carpenters Strike

Portland, 01.06.2007 16:38

Northwest Carpenters Prepared to Strike across Oregon and Southwest Washington. More than 1,300 Carpenters in Washington and Oregon may walk off Jobsites over Inadequate Wage Increases

PORTLAND - With only a day before the contracts expire at midnight on May 31st, members of the Pacific Northwest Regional Council of Carpenters (PNWRCC) in Washington and Oregon may be forced to walk off dozens of active construction sites; the strike is imminent since the contractors failed to offer an acceptable increase to workers' wages and benefits. Already, 97.5% of the affected carpenters have voted in favor of striking as a last resort.

The contract governing drywall, acoustic ceiling and lather specialists in Oregon and Southwest Washington expires at midnight on May 31st. PNWRCC members and their representatives have been negotiating with drywall subcontractors for the last several weeks to hammer out important contract provisions that affect jobsite safety, productivity, wages and benefits.

Mit Messer und Habel gegen die Repression

Switzerland, 01.06.2007 14:07

Seit 15 Jahren gibt die Gassenküche der SchülerInnen Koordination Bern (SiKB.) jeden Sonntag Essen rund um den Hauptbahnhof an Drogensüchtige und weitere Personen ab.
Mit dem Umbau des Bahnhofplatzes und der bevorstehenden EM 08 beginnt der rot-grüne Gemeinderat zunehmend eine Vertreibungspolitik zu fahren, welche die Innenstadt und den Bahnhofplatz "sauber" halten soll. Die wöchentliche Essensabgabe der Gakü kann/soll gemäss SiKB nicht zuletzt als eine Demonstration gegen genau diese verlogene Drogenpolitik verstanden werden.

Der Gemeinderat entschied vor ein paar Wochen die Gassenküche und deren (ehrenamtliche) Arbeit bloss noch in der Drogenanlaufstelle an der Hodlerstrasse zu akzeptieren und sie und deren Gäste somit von der Bildfläche verschwinden zu lassen.
Vergangenen Sonntag wurde deshalb nun die Gassenküche auf Befehl des Gemeinderates polizeilich unter Tränengaseinsatz geräumt ( 1 | 2 - Medienmitteilung). Vom Gemeinderat werde nur der Standort bei der Dorgenanlaufstelle in der Hoderstrasse akzeptiert, was von der SIKB abgelehnt wird. Für den nächsten Sonntag weiss die Gassenküche noch nicht, wo und wie ihre Essensausgabe stattfinden soll. Sie soll jedoch auf jedenfall stattfinden.
Es fanden auch schon Aktionen als Antwort auf die Repression statt: Aktion der Gassenküche (SiKB) Bern

&quot;Long Live International Solidarity&quot; - Protests Haunt Arroyo Tour

Aotearoa, 01.06.2007 11:10

Protests across Aotearoa have marred the week long tour of the Phillipine's President Gloria Arroyo. A counter-tour of Aotearoa by trade union leader Dennis Maga has put the Arroyo regime on the defensive and gained international media attention for the cause of the Free Ka Bel Movement and the Stop the Killings campaign protesting the nearly 850 people who have killed in extrajudicial assasinations of left-wing politicians, human rights activists, unionists, journalists and religious leaders.

On Monday in Wellington unionists and activists protested Arroyo's visit and lunch at parliament with Helen Clark. On Tuesday a group of around fifteen human rights activists and unionists led by Dennis Maga held a noisy four hour protests outside the Copthorne Hotel in Waitangi as Arroyo and Clark addressed the Asia-Pacific Regional Interfaith Forum. Whistle-blowing, drumming and chants of "Gloria, Murderer!", "Blood, Blood, Blood on your hands!" and "Long live international solidarity!" could be heard inside the conference. Several dozen white crosses were planted in the ground at the entry to the treaty grounds to symbolise the 858 extra judicial killings during the Arroyo regime.

On Friday two hundred members of the National Distribution Union at the Progressive Enterprises supermarket distribution centre at Favona Road Mangere, held a spontaneous walkout and demonstration in solidarity with the Fillipino labour movement.
